“As a species, I don’t see limits as our issue. What I see as our issue is are we on the right growing edge?”

On the call with me today is Ali Alborzi. I first met Ali at the Omega Institute for a conference called “The Next Conversation” which focused on what it means to be a man and what it means to be a woman in the world today.

Speakers like Diana Nyad and Ted Turner joined us in the conversation and I got to learn a lot about mindfulness, meditation, and living fully from Ali Alborzi.

Ali and his wife, Josie Maran (a former Maybelline cover girl), run Josie Maran Cosmetics with the aim to empower women throughout the world. Ali is a student of The Empowerment Institute which he references several times throughout the interview. David Gershon and Gail Straub have worked on this program for over thirty years and call it “a comprehensive blueprint for designing transformative social innovations and large-scale societal change.” 

Make sure to check out Imagine: the movement created by Ali and Josie to change the game around women’s empowerment in the developing world.
